Abstract

A pericardial myxoid liposarcoma was diagnosed in a common eland ( Taurotragus oryx) based on gross, microscopical and immunohistochemical findings. The pericardial and epicardial tissues were soft and uniformly thickened. Microscopically, the ncoplastic mass consisted of stellate cells embedded in a myxoid matrix. These cells contained cytoplasmic vacuoles stained by oil red O. Immunohistochemical analysis showed the neoplastic cells to express vimentin and S-100.
